Make a nice fresh cut along the grass part of your edges in a nice smooth arc. Then trench out the soil using a handheld garden shovel and mound it away from the edge.

A trench creates a place for water to drain and soil to fall. And offers a shadow for a nice clean look.

2. Scoop out the cut chunks of turf.

3. With hand held clippers, trim your grassy edges horizontally and vertically for a nice sharp haircut.

Tips
